Stillwater, NY - With only one week away from Christmas, the Justice Democrats have officially endorsed Patrick Nelson, Democratic Congressional candidate for NY-21. He will stand alongside Congressman Ro Khanna (CA-17), Congressman Raúl Grijalva (AZ-3) and 39 other progressive candidates nationwide who are looking to take back the house in 2018.

"It’s an honor to join a team of dedicated, present, and aspiring public servants committed to taking our Democratic Party back to its roots as the party of the people,” stated Patrick Nelson. “We understand that removing ourselves from the corrupting influence of corporate money is an essential step in that process and that the American people demand and deserve leadership by example.”

The Justice Democrats was co-founded by the co-host of The Young Turks, Cenk Uygur in January 2017. The Tennessee based organization is hoping to rebuild the Democratic Party and run corruption-free Democratic congressional campaigns that lead to a progressive and un-bought Congress in 2018.

“We’re excited to have Patrick join our Justice Democrat’s team and we are looking forward to supporting him through his campaign,” said Alexandra Rojas, Director of Campaigns for Justice Democrats. “We believe that Patrick’s grassroots, issues focused campaign demonstrates his knowledge of policy and commitment to serving the residents of New York’s 21st District.”

Patrick is seeking the Democratic nomination to run against Congresswoman Stefanik in November 2018.
